  • Broken Records And Broken Dreams In Coastal Cup


    Dave MacEwans's Rodgers 46' Lucky Duck sustained a Massive Sail reduction during Monday's Coastal Cup, the 2nd leg in the California Offshore Race Week

    "Just got to San Simeon cove after breaking our mast on the Coastal Cup .
    In a 36 knot puff stuck the bow down the shaft hard and the rig went over the bow .. all are safe .
    In morning we will try to get fuel out to us so we can power down to Morro bay in morning.
    Update boat in cove is giving us 10 gallons of fuel in morning !"
